Doris Rikkers is a freelance writer and editor who has written many bestselling childrens books and Bibles. Although she loves the ocean, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, surrounded by her books, her flower gardens, and her family and friends.
Bethany believes a bitter heart is more of a handicap than a physical setback. Therefore, despite the trials in her life, she chooses to respond with joy and optimism. She views her traumatic experience as a gift given to her to help others and further Gods Kingdom. This attitude is unmistakably revealed in her book as she lovingly responds to fans with confident hope and continued trust in God.
She answers a stockpile of questions she's received about her attack and about surfing, friends, God, and school. With questions arranged topically and with Bible verses related to each subject, the book reads like an intimate interview. The conversational tone creates a warm relationship between the author and reader. It is evident Bethany cares about her readers and desires to share practical wisdom with them. Because of the personal connection, readers will view this advice as coming from a good friend rather than a popular celebrity.
This book is a great resource for girls beginning to explore how to be a godly woman. Advice from Bethany is rooted in Scripture and is morally sound; her testimony proves her to be a worthy role model. The book is also sprinkled with a few lessons in basic theology as she describes the character of God in a way young girls can easily understand. Cute graphics and large text make the book a pleasure to read. I was impressed with Bethany's passion for young girls and the relevance of her advice. As a young woman passionate about witnessing to girls, I gained a lot of insights from this book. Becky Jacobs, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
